Bowling Spin is the seventh boss in Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles and is found at the end of Act 1 in the Carnival Night Zone. This boss is one of the few that cannot be attacked directly and is self-defeating.
The boss is on a descending platform built up of coloured bricks that the Bowling Spin hovers back and forth over. It sends out a spinning, spiked platform which bounces around the stage, this can hurt the player but also destroys the coloured platform that the player stands on. If the player happens to fall through a gap in the floor they will meet instant death. Also, the hovering main body of the machine periodically electrifies itself.
The way to cause damage to the boss is by hitting it whilst it isn't electrified which causes the lower part of the machine to extend. If the spinning spiked platform collides with this part of the machine it takes damage.
